Update On The Reported Partnership Between WWE And All Japan Pro Wrestling

We noted yesterday how word came from Japan that WWE is partnering up with All Japan Pro Wrestling. This comes after WWE's recent tour of Japan where several promotion heads pitched ideas to WWE officials about establishing developmental territories there.

In an update, word is that All Japan's Kaz Hayashi and another official had dinner with WWE's John Laurinaitis while WWE was in Japan earlier this year. AJPW talked with Laurinaitis about them being a developmental territory for WWE. Apparently that's what the new partnership is. For what it's worth, the impression was given to Wrestling Observer editor Dave Meltzer that there's "nothing major" to the deal.
